The fear of the subversive has governed American politics, from the racial conflicts of the early republic to the Hollywood anti-Communism of Ronald Reagan. Political monsters—the Indian cannibal, the black rapist, the demon rum, the bomb-throwing anarchist, the many-tentacled Communist conspiracy, the agents of international terrorism—are familiar figures in the dream life that so often dominates American political consciousness. What are the meanings and sources of these demons? Why does the American political imagination conjure them up? Michael Rogin answers these questions by examining the American countersubversive tradition.

Two-year-old Neil Reagan stared at his new brother and squawked, "I wanted a sister, not a loud crying brother!" Little did big brother Neil know that someday his baby brother would become the fortieth president of the United States. In this colorful biography, Libby Hughes chronicles the life of Ronald Wilson Reagan, beginning in the small, remote town of Tampico, Illinois, and ending ninety-three years later at his home in Bel-Air, California. Reagan started his diverse career as an Iowa radio sportscaster and later acted in more than fifty movies. He served as president of the Screen Actor's Guild, won a landslide victory as governor of California, and served two terms as the president of the United States. Ronald Reagan-nicknamed "Dutch"-was a jokester and a storyteller whose straight-talking, Midwestern style attracted the admiration of friends as well as world leaders. Ronald Reagan: From Sports to Movies to Politics will remind you why the Great Communicator became one of America's favorite presidents. "Whatever else history may say about me when I'm gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts."-Ronald Reagan, fortieth president of the United States

The former special advisor and press secretary to President Ronald Reagan shares a “sentimental but often revealing…enjoyable walk down Memory Lane” (Kirkus Reviews)—told through the movies he watched with the Reagans every week at Camp David. Over the course of eight years, Mark Weinberg travelled to Camp David with Ronald and Nancy Reagan as they screened movies on Friday and Saturday nights. They watched movies in times of triumph, such as the aftermath of Reagan’s 1984 landslide, and after moments of tragedy, such as the explosion of the Challenger and the shooting of the President and Press Secretary Jim Brady. Weinberg’s unparalleled access offers a rare glimpse of the Reagans—unscripted, relaxed, unburdened by the world, with no cameras in sight. Each chapter discusses a legendary film, what the Reagans thought of it, and provides warm anecdotes and untold stories about his family and the administration. From Reagan’s pranks on the Secret Service to his thoughts on the parallels between Hollywood and Washington, Weinberg paints a full picture of the president The New Yorker once famously dubbed “The Unknowable.” A “meander through a simpler time capturing a different time and a different president” (USA TODAY), Movie Nights with the Reagans is a nostalgic journey through the 1980s and its most iconic films, seen through the eyes of one of Hollywood’s former stars: one who was simultaneously transforming the Republican Party, the American economy, and the course of the Cold War. “For those equally enthused about movies and the fortieth president, this book will serve as a welcome change from today’s political climate” (Publishers Weekly).

His greatest role was as 40th President of the United States (1981-89). But, prior to his presidency and serving as California governor (1967-75), Ronald Reagan had a prolific career as a Hollywood actor in motion pictures and television programs. The Ronald Reagan Movie Poster Book celebrates his film career, by presenting one sheet posters and/or poster art and stills from Reagan's over 50 feature length films, from his first, Love in the Air (1937) to The Killers (1964). (Vintage still photographs or other poster art are substituted in the cases where high quality posters were unavailable, except in some uncredited or small roles where he did not receive billing on publicity materials or was included in them.) Among the volume of poster art included are those films considered to be Reagan's best, from Dark Victory (1939) to Knute Rockne, All American (1940) to King's Row (1942) to Storm Warning (1951) to The Killers (1964) and many more.

This full colour, impressively weighty biography, concentrates on the lengthy movie career of Ronald Reagan; a first career, founded in an explosive era that generated such powerful Presidential politics two decades later. Sadly, Reagan's diverse collection of films tends to be scoffed at by the scholarly, and they are today largely ignored, obscured behind his later political achievements. But, for those wanting to understand what made this charismatically popular President of the United States of America tick, his Hollywood years must be looked at in depth. For it was there he learned the actor's skills that allowed the politician to communicate so effectively. The unusually close relationships he was later able to forge with world leaders and the American public makes little sense without the framework of their development. He was a major Hollywood player. He starred in some classic film contributions. He enjoyed the company of some of the day's favourite leading female stars; he married two of them. He worked with top producers and directors. From his very early days as a film star, he was deeply involved in Hollywood's politics, and his broad-smiling affability and silky voice hid the steel that would lead him right to the top. Loaded with stills, detailed movie production notes, synopses, financial records and reviews.
